You’ve Got The High Ground! – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional February 17th

(March The Devils Out)

TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 149: 5-9
“Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand,…to execute on them the written judgment— This honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!”

A young prince marched to war with an army behind him. In his father’s absence, it had fallen to him to protect the territory from invasion and he vowed to stop the advancement of the invaders.

When asked what his confidence was, he replied, “We have the higher ground.” He subsequently drove the invaders from his land and enjoyed a period of peace and prosperity.

The Bible lets us know that the Lord Jesus occupies the most exalted position there is. He’s seated at the right hand of the Father, far above all principality, power, might, dominion, and every name that is named (Ephesians 1:19-21).

But the more exciting part is that you’re in Him. You’re seated with Him in glory, with dominion over satan and the princes of darkness (Ephesians 2:6). You’ve got the higher ground!

But then it gets even more exciting: in Christianity, we don’t fight the devil or negotiate with him; we cast him out! We exercise dominion and execute judgment over Satan and the principalities of darkness.

They’ve been judged, and we’re the ones authorized to execute the judgment; it’s part of our heritage in Christ: “To execute on them the written judgment—This honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!” (Psalm 149:9).

In John 16:11, Jesus said, “…the prince of this world is judged”; it’s your responsibility to keep him under your feet. That’s why the Bible says to cast him out! You don’t struggle or negotiate with satan. The resurrection of Jesus made a champion of you. You operate from a higher realm where your words are backed by Deity.

You’re the one in charge. Use your authority in the Name of Jesus to frustrate and overturn his activities. Jesus gave you all authority in heaven and the earth (Matthew 28:18-19); use it every day against satan and the demons of darkness. Glory to God!

I walk in dominion over satan and the princes of darkness, because I’m seated with Christ in glory, dominion and power. I reign and rule over circumstances and elements of this world, today and always, because I live in and by the Name of Jesus. Amen.
